FreedomWorks Statement of Support on the Nomination of Neomi Rao to Replace Justice Kavanaugh on the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals

WASHINGTON, D.C. — In response to President Trump’s decision to nominate Neomi Rao to replace Justice Brett Kavanaugh on the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals, Adam Brandon, FreedomWorks President, commented:

“Neomi Rao is a fantastic pick and will carry on her predecessor’s legacy of reigning in the excesses of the administrative state. She was already leading the way on regulatory reform as the head of the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs (OIRA), facilitating billions in reduced regulatory economic burdens over the last two years. Now she has the opportunity to do so from the bench and set precedents that cannot be easily undone by future administrations. We hope she is quickly confirmed by the Senate so President Trump can go about the difficult job of finding another OIRA chief of her caliber.

“Our expansive grassroots community has been critical in ensuring the confirmation of numerous pro-liberty judicial appointees throughout the Trump Administration, and FreedomWorks looks forward to doing the same for Neomi Rao.”
